Editorial Reviews

Raising kids is never easy. Eliza, a stay-at-home mom of two, hilariously finds this out in seemingly endless day where she must plan a birthday party, deal with her scatter-brained husband, save her car from being towed, and write an essay for a parenting magazine before the fast-approaching deadline. Starring Uma Thurman, Anthony Edwards and Minnie Driver.

Format: DVD
Greenwhich Village, NY (specifically the west village) provides the backdrop for this totally fun romantic comedy about a mom who has to plan out one crazy, yet typical mom-day that in this instance includes tonight's 6 year b-day party, but also includes protecting her car, saving her bike, getting the right goodie-bags, befriending her friend (Minnie Driver)and of course writing her blog about being a mom. Whew....

Uma Thurman, in a role so entirely different than anything she's done before, plays 'mom' and is fantastic! Her relationship with her husband (Anthony Edwards) seem quite real-life in that he wants to be of help but hey... he is a man, right? There IS a bit of magic between them indeed and while it might not be on the scale of "Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan" (yet), it peeks through nonetheless and proves itself by the end of the film in a scene sure to win you over entirely. I could envision the two together in more films going forward...

Minnie Driver plays the perfect supporting role as 'insightful best friend' and while the movie runs along a somewhat predictable course at times, it also provides some very nice surprises and follows that formula that always wins while laying in some interesting insights into what it's like to be a mom. I can see the mommy-blogs launching new discussions for sure and a plethora of subjects. OK OK... I realize that I am not a mom, but I am married to one...

If you enjoy films like Moonstruck, Sleepless in Seattle, Mask, You've Got Mail and so on, Motherhood is a likely winner for you.

I loved this movie. The Norman Rockwell/"Leave it to Beaver" view of motherhood never worked for me. Life is a wonderful, funny, heartbreaking juggling act...and I think this film "gets it." As I've raised my brood in a rural community, I was amused and fascinated by the film's take on raising kids in the city. Overall...the film fascinated me...amused me...touched me. It was one of the better films I've seen recently. It's smart, and the humor comes out of irony.

Format: DVD
Great movie. Period. Many of us mothers could relate to this character, even though many other reviewers didn't think so. I am a stay at home mom in the heart of a big city to kids the same age as those on the movie. Its rough at times, especially when you have no grandparents or anyone to drop the kids off to so you can have some of your life back for an instant. I have had my husband come home to watch kids cause I needed 15 minutes of peace at the store. By the end, her long speech to her husband hit home. We lived similar lives to the movie husband and wife, and it brought things to perspective. Motherhood is a joy and a chore all that the same time. But I, like the main character, wouldn't trade it for anything.

This was a very funny movie and well worth the hour and a half or so spent watching it... A lot of reviewers seem to want perfection as they see it in a movie about a mom making her way through a busy day, but this movie just offers some hilarious fun and good-natured escape. I'd recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor!

I by passed this at the rental store but I wish now that I had not. Uma Thurman really did an awesome job in this film and every mother could totally relate to this film and if your a blogger mom you'll love it! I know the critics really got down on this film but they made a mistake it's a gem!

Don't be fooled by that 5-star review. This could have been extremely funny, but it was not at all. I am a mother and think my day-to-day life can be humorous at times, but the humor is way too contrived and the actors are trying too hard to be funny. The whole thing made me cringe. My husband went to bed after 10 minutes, I should have gone with him.

***1/2

Eliza Welsh is what one of the characters in "Motherhood" refers to derisively as an "urban mom." That is to say a young woman who lives in an upscale part of town (in this case, Greenwich Village), has a hoard of New Age-y mom friends who obsess over the ins-and-outs of successful childrearing, and herself hosts a blog dedicated to - what else? - how to survive the rigors of young motherhood without sacrificing one's identity as a woman, as a wife and as an individual. It's a battle that Eliza seems to be losing at the moment, but at least she's giving it the old college try.

Written and directed by Katherine Dieckmann, this seriocomic tale takes place on the day before Eliza's oldest child is to turn six. Filled with mixed emotions at the event and saddled with a husband (Anthony Edwards) who seems more focused on his own needs than those of his wife, Eliza struggles with arranging a birthday party, dodging parking tickets, coping with a studio-shoot on her street, looking out for her elderly neighbor, and raising a toddler - all while trying to carve out a little time for herself to write and to do all the things adults (those without children, at least) normally do in the course of their days.

Dieckmann's screenplay is filled with both poignancy and humor as it deftly explores the life of this harried mother.
